A new lid on the block.
Known for its snow, skate, ski, and commuting helmets, Bern is now dipping its toes into the road cycling market with the FL-1 MIPS Helmet. In contrast to the sea of overly streamlined lids, this helmet brings an edgy aesthetic and boasts industry-leading tech to cover everything from going off the front of a local Tuesday Night Worlds peloton to dodging errant chipmunks on your daily commute.
MIPS, which is short for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, is a strategically anchored, thin liner on the inside of the helmet that looks exceptionally simple but serves a big purpose. That little liner is designed to move independently of the helmet's shell and diffuse the rotational forces caused by some crashes.
Bern recognizes that, while it's not a helmet's first priority, we do also enjoy being comfortable in the saddle, so it incorporates 18 vents to facilitate ample cooling airflow. A Bern Yoke adjustment system allows 360 degrees of adjustability so you can customize the fit to perfectly match your dome for a comfortable ride.
